HUSQVARNA FAST TRACTOR™ YTH24K48
This mower is totally unsatisfactory for a yard tractor if you have
the slightest upgrade or hill. Let me start at the beginning.
Seat comes lose going down hill and jams you harder on the pedals.
Contact Husqvarna warranty dealer and he said I didn't buy it there
so he wouldn't touch it, this was within a month of buying it.
Tires were so cheap you can watch the tire sealant seeping through the dry rotted sidewalls. I got tired of inflating every time I went to mow.
The best part is how this thing tears up the yard. The owners manual recommends running it at full speed. Yeah right. I have chains on the rear tires and it will spin them in the slightest wet or uphill. My yard is starting to look like a moto cross course.

Purchased this unit at a Big Box store 1 year ago. Reverse has never been great in this unit. Very slow and hard to engage. Linkage is fine and valve is engaging fully. Just no power in reverse. The Deck height at maximum is way to low for our terrain. I'm in the real world not on a golf course. I've had two mandrels broken and was told they are not covered under warrantee. I had to eat the repairs. I was also told by a dealer that this is an issue with these machines and that particular part is one of their biggest sellers. I adjusted the deck wheels to the lowest setting just to find that any rise in the ground forces the spindle guards into the body of the mower. While adjusting the wheels I also discovered that the mounting holes on the rear of the deck cause the deck wheels to bind against the deck. The mounting holes in the second row are totally useless. The mandrels on these machines are some of the flimsiest things I've seen. The "air vents" that the company so proudly boasts do nothing as they are completely covered within 5 minutes of cutting. I also found out from a dealer that they no longer make this model and that It's not manufactured by Husqvarna but by a third party with Husqvarna's paint and name. Shame on you Husqvarna! Save your money and buy a Deer.

Grass to cut
This is my second and it's as good as the first. Getting use to the foot doing the driving took some time and the key in the right area, so that the engine doesn't quit in reverse.
It has no problems cutting five acres

I like it so far
I've only had my mower for about a month now. So far I love it. My only complaint is the new deck design. It allows to much grass to get on top of the deck and around the pulleys. I usually take the guards off when finished mowing to make it easier to clean up then put them back on. It mows great, comfortable ride.

My Best Tractor
This is my first new tractor in fifteen years. I tried several tractors at local demos and found this tractor to be the best for my needs. I have a one acre lot and my new Husqvarna is far better than my old John Deere. If I needed another mower it would be another Husqvarna

Excellent thus far (4 hr of mowing). Runs tight and strong, starts easily and is very comfortable. Stupid fast for a riding mower. Had no problems with wet grass 6" high. So far impressed as long as it holds up. Was comparing to Craftsman and Simplicity and thought this was the best value.

Not good if you have steep hills!
Mower is great for flat lawns and if you only have slight hills in your yard. I have steep hills and there is no weight in the rear-end. My wife would have to come out and push me up a hill because a tire would be spinning. Try and shift your weight to whichever tire is spinning and the engine would die which is a great safety feature but my 26yr old Murray tractor is able to still run when I shift my weight when I get stuck. I could dis-connect the safety feature but why spend the money when my 26yr old Murray will do the job. Returned it 2 weeks later and still searching for a mower. I'm told I'll need a commercial zero turn mower for my property.
